Next Steps

Wendy Pake has built a successful career as a partner with Healthcare Practice.

Wendy Pake has built a successful career as a partner with Healthcare Practice.  "I had to find a way to provide for my two children quickly," says Wendy, from Edinburgh. "The Healthcare Practice opportunity attracted me. I had no medical or sales background but I knew I was good with people and felt I could provide advice."

wpa Franchisee -Wendy PakeWendy took the training course and within a year business took off. "Once I had sourced my first customers they referred me to others and pretty soon I had a built a strong customer base," says Wendy.

Partners with ethical, not-for-profit company WPA provide advice on Healthcare Practice medical insurance to companies and individuals, mostly working from home.  There is no need for premises or stock.  "It helps that we use a gentle approach," says Wendy. "I earn more than most women I know, and as a self-employed company representative I can fit my work around the family."  She says:  "Health insurance sounds like a man’s world, but it’s not.  I think women are especially suited to it. Some customers feel more comfortable giving their medical history to a woman."

The ideal partner has high ethical standards and the ability to build strong relationships with individual and corporate customers.  They must have a strong desire to succeed and a glass half-full approach to life.  Healthcare Practice can teach, mentor and guide you through the rest.

What Our Franchisees Say

My advice for anyone looking to become a Healthcare Partner is just do it! If there is a practice available near you then absolutely go for it. The training, the support, the help, the advice - it’s been the best decision that I’ve made.Ross Le Jeune - Healthcare Partner since 2016


Attending the open day at Head Office was extremely useful and helped reassure me that I was perusing a good opportunity. It allowed me to learn more about WPA, meet a number of staff and experience the culture and transparency of the organisation. It certainly played a crucial role in my decision making process about becoming a Healthcare Partner.Catherine Bennett – Healthcare Partner since December 2014


Attending an Open Day and seeing the slick and technologically advanced operation behind the scene convinced me I was making the right choice. By the time I left the Open Day, I had made up my mind that WPA was a company which lived the business values that matched my own.David Rollock – Healthcare Partner since September 2014
